I don’t think Pa Modou knew how clear the reflection on the car would be when we took this photograph. 😋
Last time when I met Panetoz, Pa Modou wanted some solo portraits in front of their tour bus which I was happy to take for him. Nebeyu and DJ Conteh had another idea and was fooling around when we took photos. They would be in the shot and saying stuff to make Modou loose focus and crack up. I didn’t mind it at all since I thought it was funny. But enough was enough and they would stand back to let me take Modou’s photos. But if you look closely into this photo you can see that Nebeyu and Conteh still made it in the photo. 😂👌🏽Just look at them, see how satisfied they look. 😆
Marketing is the most uncomfortable aspect of business for me. In order to grow MGP though, it’s suggested to post here daily, consistently. Ugh. I’m battling not wanting to be that annoying, over poster with wanting to showcase my work so I reach more people. It’s a vulnerable place to be in.
My niece is a freshman in college right now, but we took this last year when she was a senior. I've been thinking about my first years in college lately and remembering what a vulnerable time that was for me too...a new place, new people, away from home, no mom to keep me on track, no familiarity of the past 18 years. And it happened right after a year where I felt so ready to take on the world and confident about my future. (which is the reason seniors are awesome to photograph!) In the end, it took me six years, three different colleges and so many off the beaten paths to finally earn my bachelor's degree. Let's just say I had a lot to learn during this time, in and out of the school realm. 😉 So I’m trying to apply these life lessons here and follow business advice from those who know what they are talking about, in order to get me to where I want to be. Hopefully my vulnerability finds a soft spot to land and more people to photograph, because that is what I love to do.
